And in another, a caller warned him, "You'll be hanging from a tree," reports the Washington Post.

Some are also said to have called him the n-word.

In response, Green, a seven-term Congressman, told his constituents, "When a person talks about lynching you, we think that's a pretty serious threat."

He also said, "We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to allow this to cause us to deviate from what we believe to be the right thing to do and that is to proceed with the impeachment of President Trump."

During an interview with ABC News' Ben Siegel Tuesday, Green explained his position towards Trump, saying, "I don't think the president of the United States of America is above the law."

When Siegel asked about the impeachable act he thinks Trump committed, Green said, "The president fired the FBI director who was investigating the president's campaign ties to Russian involvement in the president's election."

And, after the Congressman made references to Trump's explanation that he fired Comey over Russia and Trump's Twitter warning to Comey about their conversations, Green said, "I think that when you take all of these things under consideration, then you conclude that the president's behavior has constituted an impeachable offense."
